each side of said specified street(s) between the 
points herein described, after removing trees there- 
from, shall be so graded by cutting or filling and 
compacted by rolling with a roller of ten (10) 
tons weight that after the grading of the road- 
bed(s) is completed and the pavement herein de- 
scribed placed thereon, the surface of the finished 
pavement at the center of the roadway of each of 
said specified street (s) shall be at the elevation of 
the top of the curbing herein described; and the 
surface of the said finished pavement at the sum- 
mits in the gutters between catchbasins and ad- 
joining the roadway face of the curbing shall be 
three (3) inches below the top of said curbing, and 
at the catchbasin inlets in the gutters adjoining 
the roadway face of the curbing shall be nine (9) 
inches below the top of said curbing. The slope 
of the gutters adjoining the roadway face of said 
curbing shall be uniform from the summits to the 
catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and 
the elevation of the center of said finished roadway 
at every part of the roadway of each of said spe- 
cified street (s) between the points herein de- 
scribed. 

In all intersecting alley (s) herein specified at 
the street line(s) of said specified street (s) the 
surface of the finished pavement adjoining the 
curbing shall be even with the top of the curbing, 
and the surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway (s) of said alley (s) shall be 
three (3) inches below the top of the curbing: 
and a transverse section of the surface of the 
finished pavement at the street Liiie(s) of said 
specified street (s) shall be an arc of a circle pass- 
ing through the surface of the pavement adjoining 
said curbing and the surface of the pavement at 
the center of said finished roadway (s). The sur- 
face of the said pavement thence shall slope gradu- 
ally to meet the surface of the finished pavement 
at the curb lines of said specified street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course con- 
sisting of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of 
four (4) inches internal diameter and held on a 
ring of two (2) inches internal diameter. The 
stone as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It 
shall be evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets 
filled with the small size stone. This layer shall 
be thoroughly rolled with a self-propelled three- 
wheel roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. 

The rolling shall begin at the edges of the pave- 
ment and the roller shall move parallel with the 
center line of the roadway. The roller shall prog- 
ress gradually toward the center of the roadway, 
uniformly lapping each preceding track, covering 
the entire surface with the rear wheels and con- 
tinuing until the stone does not creep or move 
ahead of the roller. After the crushed limestone 
has been thoroughly rolled and keyed, limestone 
screenings shall be applied gradually over the sur- 
face and the rolling continued until sufficient 
screenings have been applied to completely fill the 
interstices. 

The screenings shall be swept in with hand 
brooms to properly fill the voids. The spreading 



and rolling shall continue until no more screenings 
will go in dry. No excess of screenings shall be 
used before applying water. Immediately after the 
voids have been filled with screenings, the macadam 
shall be sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler be- 
ing followed by a roller. More screenings shall be 
added if necessary. The sprinkling, sweeping and 
rolling shall continue until a grout shall be formed 
of the screenings and water that will fill all voids, 
and form a wave of grout before the wheels of the 
roller. The quantity of screenings and water nec- 
essary to fill the voids shall be determined by the 
engineer and shall be sufficient to produce a rough, 
granular surface. The rolling, at all times, shall 
begin at the sides, and then progress toward the 
center, thoroughly covering the entire surface with 
the rear wheels. When compacted, this layer shall 
measure not less than five (5) inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a depth 
providing a total base course thickness of three 
(3) inches after final compaction. After shaping 
to grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton roller 
three quarter ( % ) inch stone chips shall be broad- 
cast and broomed into the surface voids at the 
rate of fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid 
asphalt at a temperature of 140° F. shall be uni- 
formly applied by a pressure distributor at a rate 
of one and one-half (1^/^) gallons per square yard. 
Stone chips shall again be broadcast and broomed 
uniformly over the surface at the rate of fifteen 
(15) pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt shall 
be uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at 
the rate of one-half (1/2) gallon per square yard. 
Stone chips shall be broadcast again at the rate of 
ten ( 10 ) pounds per square yard. The surface shall 
then be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt shall con- 
form to the State Specifications for Emulsified 
Asphalt R.S.I, and R.S.2 Page 640 State of Illinois 
Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Con- 
struction adopted January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches 
in thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete 
mixture conforming to the standard requirements 
of the Illinois State Division of Highways for Type 
I-II Asphaltic Concrete adopted January 2, 1952, 
as follows: the asphaltic mix shall consist of a 
mineral aggregate bonded with an asphaltic ce- 
ment. The mineral aggregate shall consist of the 
best quality of crushed gravel or crushed stone in 
sizes graduated in accordance with the following 
table, viz.: 

Asphaltic Concrete Surface Courses, Fine

of Highways for Grade P.A.6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash 
point (Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. 
It shall have penetration at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eighty- 
five (85), and at least ninety-nine and five tenths 
(99.5) per cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in 
carbon disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty -five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving as- 
phalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquette Dow form of said paving 
asphalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters 
per minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit 
in an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous 
mixture in which all particles of aggregate are 
coated uniformly. The heated mixture shall be de-; 
livered to the pavement in, trucks with approved 
clean tight dump bodies. The temperature when 
delivered at the street shall be between two hun- 
dred fifty (250) and three hundred fifty (350) 
degrees fahrenheit. Upon arrival the asphaltic 
mixture shall be spread upon the prepared base at 
a uniform depth and consistency so that the thick- 
ness when compacted as herein described will be 
two (2) inches. Immediately after the asphalt 
surface course shall be spread it shall be com- 
pacted thoroughly and uniformly with a three (3) 
wheel roller or a tandem roller. The asphalt pav- 
ing mix shall be dumped first upon approved steel 
dump pans outside of the area on which it is to be 
spread. Immediately thereafter it shall be dis- 
tributed into place with shovels and spread with 
rakes in layers of uniform density and correct 
depth, unless a spreading machine is used. If a 
spreading machine is used it shall be of a type 
approved by the Board of Local Improvements. 
Immediately after the surface course mixture is 
placed it shall be compacted thoroughly and uni- 
formly with a three-wheel roller or a tandem roller. 
One (1) or more three-wheel rollers and one (1) 
or more tandem rollers will be required. The actual 
number of such rollers to be used shall be deter- 
mined by the Engineer in accordance with the 
progress of the work. If the production of the 
asphalt plant delivered to the pavement exceeds 
seventy-five (75) tons per hour additional rollers 
shall be furnished as directed by said Engineer. 
After final rolling the asphalt surface course shall 
at all points have a density of not less than ninety- 
five (95) per cent of the maximum possible density 
of a voidless pavement composed of the same mate- 
rials in like proportions. 

Concrete crosswalks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete crosswalks shall be built ac- 
cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

A 6" X 20" Concrete Header shall be constructed 
along the north and south lines of said sixteen 
(16) foot roadways in W. 63rd Place from the 



west line of S. Austin Avenue to the east line of 
S. Narragansett Avenue (excepting the street in- 
tersections between said above mentioned points). 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and 
gutters). 

All existing cat'chbasins which are to be aban- 
doned are located at the intersections of streets. 
Where existing catchbasins are to be abandoned 
the outlet pipe connection from the catchbasin to 
the sewer shall be plugged and properly sealed and 
the corbel courses broken down and the catch- 
basin cleaned and filled with suitable material. 

Said work is to be done in a workmanlike man- 
ner under the superintendence of the Board of 
Local Improvements of the said City of Chicago.

The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadway (s) of the several street (s) hereto- 
fore specified between the points herein described, 
also the roadway (s) of all intersecting alley (s) 
extended from the curb line to the street line on 
each side of said specified street (s) between the 
points herein described, shall be so graded by cut- 
ting or filling and compacted by rolling with a 
roller of ten (10) tons weight that after the grad- 
ing of the roadbed(s) is completed and the pave- 
ment herein described placed thereon, the surface 
of the finished pavement at the center of the road- 
way of each of said specified street (s) shall be at 
the elevation of the top of the curbing herein 
described ; and the surface of the said finished pave- 
ment at the summits in the gutters between catch- 
basins and adjoining the roadway face of the curb- 
ing shall be three (3) inches below the top of said 
curbing, and at the catchbasin inlets in the gutters 
adjoining the roadway face of said curbing shall 
be uniform from the summits to the catchbasin 
inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and the 
elevation of the center of said finished roadway at 



November 7, 1957 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

every part of the roadway of each of said specified 
street (s) between the points herein described. 

In all intersecting alley (s) herein specified at the 
street line(s) of said specified street (s) the surface 
of the finished pavement adjoining the curbing shall 
be even with the top of the curbing, and the sur- 
face of the finished pavement at the center of the 
roadway (s) of said alley (s) shall be three (3) 
inches below the top of the curbing: and a trans- 
verse section of the surface of the finished pave- 
ment at the street line(s) of said specified street (s) 
shall be an arc of a circle passing through the sur- 
face of the pavement adjoining said curbing and 
the surface of the pavement at the center of said 
finished roadway (s). The surface of the said pave- 
ment thence shall slope gradually to meet the sur- 
face of the finished pavement at the curb lines of 
said specified street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of four 
(4) inches internal diameter and held on a ring of 
two (2) inches internal diameter. The stone as 
spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall be 
evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets filled 
with the small size stone. This layer shall be thor- 
oughly rolled with a self-propelled three-wheel 
roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The 
rolling shall begin at the edges of the pavement 
and the roller shall move parallel with the center 
line of the roadway. The roller shall progress 
gradually toward the center of the roadway, uni- 
formly lapping each preceding track, covering the 
entire surface with the rear wheels and continuing 
until the stone does not creep or move ahead of 
the roller. After the crushed limestone has been 
thoroughly rolled and keyed, limestone screenings 
shall be applied gradually over the surface and the 
rolling continued until sufficient screenings have 
been applied to completely fill the interstices. 

The screenings shall be swept in with hand 
brooms to properly fill the voids. The spreading 
and rolling shall continue until no more screenings 
will go in dry. No excess of screenings shall be 
used before applying water. Immediately after the 
voids have been filled with screenings, the macadam 
shall be sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler 
being followed by a roller. More screenings shall 
be added if necessary. The sprinkling, sweeping 
and rolling shall continue until a grout shall be 
formed of the screenings and water that will fill 
all voids, and form a wave of grout before the 
wheels of the roller. The quantity of screenings and 
water necessary to fill the voids shall be determined 
by the engineer and shall be sufficient to produce 
a rough, granular surface. The rolling, at all times, 
shall begin at the sides, and then progress toward 
the center, thoroughly covering the entire surface 
with the rear wheels. When compacted, this layer 
shall measure not less than five (5) inches in thick- 
ness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a depth 
providing a total base course thickness of three (3) 
inches after final compaction. After shaping to 
grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton roller three 
quarter (%) inch stone chips shall be broadcast 
and broomed into the surface voids at the rate of 



fifteen ( 15 ) pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt 
at a temperature of 140° F. shall be uniformly 
applied by a pressme distributor at a rate of one 
and one-half (1Y>) gallons per square yard. Stone 
chips shall again be broadcast and broomed uni- 
formly over the surface at the rate of fifteen (15) 
pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt shall be 
uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at the 
rate of one-half ( i/o ) gallon per square yard. Stone 
chips shall be broadcast again at the rate of ten 
(10) pounds per square yard. The surface shall 
then be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt shall con- 
form to the State Specifications for Emulsified 
Asphalt R.S.I and R.S.2 Page 640 State of Illinois 
Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Con- 
struction adopted January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches in 
thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete mix- 
ture conforming to the standard requirements of 
the Illinois State Division of Highways for Type 
I-II Asphaltic concrete adopted January 2, 1952, as 
follows: the asphaltic mix shall consist of a mineral 
aggregate bonded with an asphaltic cement. The 
mineral aggregate shall consist of the best quality 
of crushed gravel or crushed stone in sizes gradu- 
ated in accordance with the following table, viz.: 

Asphaltic Concrete Surface Courses, Fine 
Dense-Graded Aggregate Type 

Passing 1/2 inch sieve 95-100% 

Passing 1/2 inch, retained on 45-65% 

No. 4 sieve 25-50% 

Passing No. 4, retained on 

No. 10 sieve 10-30% 

Passing No. 10, retained on 25-40% 

No. 40 sieve 5-18% 

Passing No. 40, retained on 

No. 50 sieve 7-22% 

Passing No. 80, retained on 

No. 200 sieve 5-13% 

Passing No. 200 sieve 4-8% 

Bitumen 5-7% 

(Table 45.11 p. 247 State Specifications.) 

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Division 
of Highways for Grade P.A.6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash point 
(Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. It shall 
have penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
f ahrenheit of seventy-five ( 75 ) to eighty-five ( 85 ) , 
and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths (99.5) per 
cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in carbon 
disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees f ahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two ( 2 ) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving 
asphalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquette Dow form of said paving 
asphalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300)

and three hundred fiftj' (350) degrees fahrenheit 
in an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous 
mixture in which all particles of aggregate are 
coated uniformly. The heated mixture shall be de- 
livered to the pavement in trucks with approved 
clean tight dump bodies. The temperature when 
delivered at the street shall be between two hun- 
dred fifty (250) and three hundred fifty (350) de- 
grees fahrenheit. Upon arrival the asphaltic mix- 
ture shall be spread upon the prepared base at a 
uniform depth and consistency so that the thickness 
when compacted as herein described will be two (2) 
inches. Immediately after the asphalt surface course 
shall be spread it shall be compacted thoroughly 
and uniformly with a three (3) wheel roller or a 
tandem roller. The asphalt paving mix shall be 
dumped first upon approved steel dump pans out- 
side of the area on which it is to be spread. Im- 
mediately thereafter it shall be distributed into 
place with shovels and spread with rakes in layers 
of uniform density and correct depth, unless a 
spreading machine is used. If a spreading machine 
is used it shall be of a type approved by the Board 
of Local Improvements. Immediately after the sur- 
face course mixture is placed it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three-wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. One (1) or more three-wheel 
rollers, and one (1) or more tandem rollers will be 
required. The actual number of such rollers to be 
used shall be determined by the Engineer in ac- 
cordance with the progress of the work. If the pro- 
duction of the asphalt plant delivered to the pave- 
ment exceeds seventy-five (75) tons per hour addi- 
tional rollers shall be furnished as directed by said 
Engineer. After final rolling the asphalt surface 
course shall at all points have a density of not less 
than ninety-five (95) per cent of the maximum 
possible density of a voidless pavement composed 
of the same materials in like prooprtions. 

Concrete cross-walks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete cross-walks shall be built ac- 
cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

Driveways damaged during construction of street 
will be replaced with Portland cement concrete 
eight (8) inches in thickness. 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and 
gutters ) . 

All existing catchbasins which are to be aband- 
oned are located at the intersections of streets. 
Where existing catchbasins are to be abandoned 
the outlet pipe connection from the catchbasin to 
the sewer shall be plugged and properly sealed and 
the corbel courses broken down and the catchbasin 
cleaned and filled with suitable material. 

Said work is to be done in a workmanlike man- 
ner under the superintendence of the Board of Local 
Improvements of the said City of Chicago.

least one year prior to the beginning of the vaca- 
tion period, except those in skilled-labor and labor- 



service classes who are employed on a per diem 
basis, shall be given a vacation with pay during 
the year 1958 of two (2) weeks, and those em- 
ployes compensated on a monthly or annual basis 
who have served the City fifteen years or more

five years or more shall be granted a vacation of

ment heads think it advisable, vacations may be

purpose of determining vacation allowances. 

All employes in the skilled-labor and labor- 
service classes who are employed on a per diem 
basis shall be given a vacation with pay during the 
year 1958 subject to the following conditions:

case, at the rate of pay and under the conditions 
of employment covering those employes at the time 
the vacation is taken. 

2. Those employes who have worked for less 
than one year since the date as of which the latest 
previous vacation allowance was computed shall be 
granted a vacation proportionate to the amount of 
service actually rendered. 

3. Those employes who have been on duty dis- 
ability whose time on such disability plus regular 
working time equals one year of service since the 
date as of which the latest previous vacation allow- 
ance was computed shall be granted two weeks'

service for the purpose of calculating a propor- 
tionate vacation. 

4. Working time shall include all days on which 
employment was had for the whole or for a part of 
the regular work day, but shall not include Sun- 
days, holidaj's or the whole or a portion of a day

vacation shall be taken and may divide such vaca- 
tion into two periods if he thinks it advisable.

of Chicago who have rendered service to the Coun- 
ty of Cook, the Chicago Park District or the Sani- 
tary District of Chicago shall have the right to

ed for the purpose of computing the number of

Be It Further Ordered, All employes, except 
those in the skilled-labor and labor-service classes 
who are employed on a per diem basis, may be 
given leave of absence with pay for periods not 
exceeding fifteen (15) days in the aggregate dur- 
ing the year on account of sickness or other cause 
for absence which may be considered by the de- 
partment head a sufficient and legitimate excuse 
for the employe's failure to be present and in at- 
tendance upon his duties, provided that the reason 
for the absence and the good faith of the employe 
in making the application for such leave shall be 
shown to the department head by such reasonable 
evidence as he may require, either by a physician's 
certificate, personal affidavit or other means; and 
provided, further, that whenever a leave of ab- 
sence on account of sickness for over three (3) 
days is applied for, such application must be made 
to the head of the department in writing within 
said three (3) days, accompanied by a certificate 
from a physician stating the nature and severity 
of such sickness. 

Vacation and sick-leave periods may be com- 
bined, but only in the event the long-continued 
sickness of the employe warrants such course; 
should such long-continued sickness extend beyond 
twenty-nine (29), thirty-six (36) or forty-three 
(43) days as provided in the second paragraph of 
the vacation order, the extended sick leave shall be 
submitted by letter from the department head, ac- 
companied by a medical certificate, to the Com- 
mittee on Finance for approval.

from the effect and operation of this order the

culosis Sanitarium, the Municipal Courts, the Board

for the eradication, development and redevelop- 
ment of slum and blighted areas; and 



Whereas, the Commission, pursuant to authority 
granted by said Blighted Areas Redevelopment Act

54-CLCC-61, determine that a tract of land on the 
southeast side of the City of Chicago is a slum 
and blighted area, as defined by said Act, which

ment Project Hyde Park A;" 

Whereas, the Commission did by Resolution No. 
54-CLCC-88, dated October 27, 1954, approve a re- 
development plan for the area and the City Council 
did approve said plan by ordinance enacted Decem- 
ber 22, 1954 (Journal of Proceedings, pages 9097- 
9111); 

Whereas, the Commission did by Resolution No. 
57-CLCC-8, dated January 9, 1957, approve Revi- 
sion No. 1 to the redevelopment plan for the area 
and the City Council did approve said Revision No. 
1 by ordinance adopted March 28, 1957 (Journal of 
Proceedings, pages 4604-4613) ; and it is the inten- 
tion of the City Council that a revised redevelop- 
ment plan of the Commission presented herewith 
shall supersede and be substituted for the rede- 
velopment plan approved March 28, 1957; 

Whereas, the Commission has prepared a rede- 
velopment plan entitled "Revision No. 2 to the

commonly known as 1340-54 E. 55th Street. 

(3) Lot 1 in Block 66 in Hyde Park, a subdivi- 
sion as aforesaid; commonly known as 1453- 
65 E. 56th Street. 

(4) Lots 21, 22 and 23 in Block 56 in the resub-

nell's subdivision of Block 67 in Hyde Park 
Subdivision aforesaid; commonly known as

Whereas, the City Council has reviewed the fore- 
going documents, and it is the sense of the City 
Council that said documents constitute a redevelop- 
ment plan within the meaning of the Blighted Areas 
Redevelopment Act of 1947 ; the said redevelopment 
plan is in accord with modern principles of urban 
planning and with the recommendations of the Chi- 
cago Plan Commission for the redevelopment of the 
general area of which Slum and Blighted Area 
Redevelopment Project Hyde Park A is a part, and 
that the City Council desires to evidence its ap- 
proval of said revised redevelopment plan; 

Whereas, it is recognized that said revised re- 
development plan contemplates certain future action 
on behalf of the City of Chicago, to wit: the vaca- 
tion of certain streets and alleys and consent to 
the location or relocation of municipal utilities in 
accordance with said redevelopment plan; approval 
and acceptance of a subdivision or resubdivision 
plat or plats and acceptance of dedication of certain 
new streets; enactment of ordinances rezoning por- 
tions of the area in accordance with said revised 
redevelopment plan; and certain other acts and 
undertakings, all in accordance with said revised 
redevelopment plan; 

Whereas, under the provisions of Title I of the 
Housing Act of 1949, as amended, the Housing and 
Home Finance Administrator is authorized to pro- 
vide federal financial assistance to local public 
agencief. for the undertaking and carrying out of 
slum clearance and urban redevelopment projects 
by private enterprise; 

Whereas, the Commission proposes to apply for 
financial assistance under such Act and to enter 
into a contract with the Housing and Home Finance 
Administrator making available federal financial 
assistance for the Project; 

Whereas, it is provided in such Act that con- 
tracts for financial aid thereunder shall require that 
the redevelopment plan for the respective project 
area be approved by the governing body of the 
locality in which the Project is situated and that 
such approval include findings by the governing 
body that (1) the financial aid to be provided in 
the contract is necessary to enable the land within 
the project area to be redeveloped in accordance 
with the redevelopment plan; (2) the redevelop- 
ment plan for the redevelopment areas in the lo- 



cality will afford maximum opportunity consistent 
with the sound needs of the locality as a whole, 
for the redevelopment of such areas by private en- 
terprise; and (3) the redevelopment plan conforms 
to a general plan for the development of the locality 
as a whole; 

Whereas, the Commission has distributed and al- 
located all of its City and State grant funds among 
additional development and redevelopment projects, 
the result of which is to make available for ex- 
penditure on Slum and Blighted Area Redevelop- 
ment Project Hyde Park A only an amount of 
funds equal to one-third of the estimated net proj- 
ect cost, as evidenced by its Resolution No. 49- 
CLCC-51 of December 14, 1949, supplemented by 
its Resolution No. 51-CLCC-44 dated August 8, 
1951; 

Whereas, there has been presented to the City 
Council of the City of Chicago information and 
data respecting redevelopment plans for the re- 
development areas in the City of Chicago, includ- 
ing the following: Redevelopment Project No. 1, 
Blighted Vacant Area Redevelopment Project No. 
2, Slum and Blighted Area Redevelopment Project 
No. 3, Project 6A of Slum and Blighted Area Re- 
development Project No. 6, Slum and Blighted 
Area Redevelopment Project No. 7, and Slum and 
Blighted Area Redevelopment Project Illinois In- 
stitute of Technology; and

B. Eligibility of the Project for Federal Aid and 
Approval of Project Designation by the Chicago 
City Council and the Illinois State Housing 
Board 

The Housing and Home Finance Agency of the 
Federal Government has determined that the proj- 
ect is eligible for the Federal financial assistance 
authorized for eligible projects by the Federal Hous- 
ing Act of 1949, as amended. 

The City Council ordinance and the Illinois State 
Housing Board resolution approving the designation 
by the Chicago Land Clearance Commission of 
Projects Hyde Park A and Hyde Park B were 
adopted on July 28, 1954, and August 6, 1954 
respectively. The City Council and the Illinois State 
Housing Board approved the original redevelopment 
plans dated October 25, 1954. Revision No. 1 to 
those redevelopment plans was approved by the Citj' 
Council and the Illinois State Housing Board on 
March 28, 1957. 

C. Project (s) Boundaries 

Project Hyde Park A is bounded generally by the 
Illinois Central Railroad right-of-way on the east, 
by 57th Street on the south, by Kimbark Avenue 
on the west, and 54th Street on the north. Project 
Hyde Park B is bounded generally by 53rd Street 
on the north, Blackstone Avenue on the east, 54th 
Street on the south, and Kimbark Avenue on the 
west. The precise boundaries of the two projects 
are shown on the several maps included as a part 
of these redevelopment plans. The legal descriptions 
of the project areas are shown on an attachment 
to this statement. 

D. Relation of Projects to Local Planning 
Objectives 

Projects Hyde Park A and Hyde Park B are 
essential parts of the urban renewal program for 
the Hyde Park-Kenwood area. The Community Con- 
servation Board of Chicago has designated the 
Hyde Park-Kenwood area as a conservation area 
and is now studying the area bounded by 47th 
Street, Lake Michigan, 59th Street and Cottage 
Grove Avenue, with certain exceptions including 
Projects Hyde Park A and B. 

The Chicago Plan Commission has worked closely 
with the Community Conservation Board and the 
Chicago Land Clearance Commission, towards the 
objective of appropriate redevelopment of Projects 
Hyde Park A and B and of the larger conservation 
area referred to above. The Redevelopment Plan, 
including the Land Use Plan for the project, is in 
conformity with the general plan for Chicago. 

E. Land Use Plan 

1. General Concepts 

The land uses specified in the attached Land 
Use Plan, Exhibit I, are based on the following 
concepts : 

(a) The unique residential environment of the 
Hyde Park community should be emphasized. 
This objective can best be accomplished by utiliz- 
ing a major part of the project area for low 
structures consisting of row houses or single 
family detached houses. Parcels of land for such 
use are so dimensioned that residential courts of 
a pleasant, quiet nature may be constructed. The 
high structures are to be so located as to ac- 
centuate the predominance of row houses and 
single family structures. 

(b) Insofar as possible, through traffic should 
be diverted from the residential part of the Hyde 
Park community. The improvement of Lake Park 
Avenue and of 55th Street within Project Hyde 



6352 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL—CHICAGO 



November 7, 1957 



Park A will assist in diverting traffic from 
north-south and east-west residential streets, 
(c) There is a need for a shopping center in 
Project Hyde Park A, properly related in size 
and location to the residential area. This revised 
plan for Projects Hyde Park A and B provides 
for such a shopping center. There is to be a 
retail shopping facility north of 55th Street, and 
a smaller one south of that street. In the latter 
area, there could be constructed buildings to ac- 
commodate a restaurant, a hotel, or other such 
facilities as are needed.

for each use are shown in the following tabulation :

3. Land to be Used for Residential Purposes 

One of the major concepts on which these rede- 
velopment plans are based is that a striking resi- 
dential complex should be created to serve as a 
gateway to the Hyde Park residential community. 
Row house structures are to be grouped around the 
high rise buildings in the center of the project. The 
row house structures may be arranged in courts in

many portions of the projects. Single family de- 
tached houses may be built in other sections. 

The several areas designated as sites for row 
houses and single family detached houses comprise 
13.1 acres. The maximum density permitted in row 
house and single family portions of the project is 
25 dwelling units per net residential acre. This 
density limitation permits the construction of a 
maximum of 275 dwelling units in row houses and 
single family structures. This plan requires that a 
minimum of 225 dwelling units be provided in such 
structures. 

In the 4.7 acres specified as sites for elevator 
apartments, the density per net residential acre 
shall not exceed 118 dwelling units. Under this 
limitation not more than 550 dwelling units may 
be constructed in that area. This plan requires that 
a minimum of 525 dwelling units be provided in 
apartment structures. 

4. Land to be Used for a Shopping Center 

The shopping center area is so located in relation 
to existing residential areas in the community, and 
to areas specified for residential use in this revised 
redevelopment plan, that it is easily accessible but 
does not adversely influence those residential uses. 

An area of 9.1 acres is specified for use as a 
shopping center including the part of the center to 
be used for automobile parking. Eight acres of that 
area are located due west of relocated Lake Park 
Avenue and adjacent to 55th Street, with the larger 
part on the north side of 55th Street. The 6.7 acres 
or 293,836 square feet on the north side of 55th 
Street is suitable for retail facilities, which could 
contain approximately 80,000 square feet of retail 
sales space and approximately 190,000 square feet 
for automobile parking. 

At the northern end of the area near 54th Street, 
a gasoline and service station can be constructed. 
The section of land specified for commercial use 
south of 55th Street can be used as sites for some 
additional stores, a restaurant, a motel, or other 
appropriate commercial purposes. 

Other sections of land specified for commercial 
use in the Land Use Plan, Exhibit I, located north 
of 55th Street on Kenwood Avenue can be used for 
an automobile parking facility needed by adjacent 
business establishments. 

F. Traffic Circulation and Public Transportation 

These revised redevelopment plans provide for 
separation of through and local traffic by concentra- 
tion of through traffic on 55th Street and Lake 
Park Avenue. 

That portion of 55th Street between the western 
boundary of the project and Ridgewood Court is 
to remain as a two-way traffic street with an 80- 
foot right-of-way, on which there are to be two 
pavements each 28 feet wide, separated by a median 
strip 10 feet wide; the portion of 55th Street be- 
tween the eastern boundary of the project and 
Harper Avenue is to remain as a two-way traffic 
street with a 100-foot right-of-way, on which there 
are to be two pavements each 30 feet wide, sepa- 
rated by a median strip 10 feet wide. In order to 
create a superblock as a site for apartment build- 
ings, that portion of 55th Street between Harper 
Avenue and Ridgewood Court is to be reconstructed 
as a divided thoroughfare, each section of which is 
to have a 50-foot right-of-way, of which 33 feet 
will be paved. 

Lake Park Avenue will serve as a preferential 
street for north-south through traffic. The right-of-

way of that street between 55th and 54th Streets 
is to be relocated so that it will be adjacent to the 
west line of the Illinois Central Railroad right-of- 
way. The part of Lake Park Avenue between 55th 
Street and the northern boundary of the project 
is to be an 80-foot right-of-way, on which are to be 
constructed two pavements each 28 feet wide, sepa- 
rated by a 10-foot median strip. Between 55th 
Street and 56th Street, Lake Park Avenue is to be 
widened to 73 feet with two pavements each 28 
feet wide, separated by a 4-foot median strip. The 
Rights-of-Way Adjustment map. Exhibit 3, shows 
the rights-of-way to be retained, vacated, and de- 
dicated to permit construction of the proposed 
street pattern. 

Circulation of local traffic will be facilitated by 
retention of the one-way street pattern in the sur- 
rounding community, and by extension of that pat- 
tern. A turn-about is to be constructed on Ridge- 
wood Court. A portion of Harper Avenue between 
56th and 57th Streets is to be widened to allow a 
median strip for a small park to be owned and 
maintained by the developer. The outlets from 
Harper Avenue north of 55th Street and from 
several existing alleys outside the project area are 
to be via drives built and maintained by the de- 
veloper. 

Major access by automobile to Chicago's central 
business district is via Lake Shore Drive. Public 
transit facilities operating on Lake Park Avenue 
and 55th Street connect to other lines serving all 
sections of the city. The 55th Street trolley bus 
line is to be improved by installation of a turn- 
around at the southwest corner of Lake Park Ave- 
nue and 54th Street within Project Hyde Park A. 
Stations of the Illinois Central Railroad are located 
one block south of the proposed shopping center at 
the intersection of 56th Street and Lake Park 
Avenue and at 53rd Street and Lake Park Avenue. 

G. Community Facilities 

1. Parks 

One and one-tenth acres of land in Project Hyde 
Park B is to be used for a park-playground ad- 
jacent to the public school (Murray) at 54th Street 
and Kenwood Avenue. Eight-tenths of an acre in 
Project Hyde Park A is to be used for a park- 
playground to be located adjacent to the Hyde 
Park Neighborhood Club on Kimbark Avenue just 
north of 55th Street. 

The recreation facilities in Jackson Park, at the 
lake front, and on the Midway at 59th Street, will 
serve residents of Projects Hyde Park A and B. 

2. Schools 

The public schools which will serve residents of 
Projects Hyde Park A and B are adequate for the 
population now resident in the area and to reside in 
projects Hyde Park A and B. Although the exact 
composition of the population which will occupy 
the dwelling units to be constructed in Projects 
Hyde Park A and B cannot be predicted, it appears 
certain that the school age population will not be 
increased substantially as a result of the projects. 
All schools are readily accessible from the project 
area. 

3. Police and Fire Protection 

The project areas are served bj' police operating 
out of headquarters on Lake Park Avenue, due 
north of 53rd Street. A fire station serving the 
project areas is located on Lake Park Avenue with- 
in Project Hyde Park A. A new station will be 
provided in a location as yet undetermined. 



4. Hospitals 

Hospitals are readily available to residents of 
Projects Hyde Park A and B. The University of 
Chicago hospital complex is located about one quar- 
ter of a mile to the southwest of the projects. The 
Illinois Central Hospital is also hereby on Stony 
Island Avenue between 57th and 59th Streets. 

5. Churches 

Existing churches of various denominations in 
the Hyde Park area are estimated to be adequate 
to serve residents of Projects Hyde Park A and B. 

H. Controls on Redevelopers 

Major controls on use of land in the project area 
are shown on Exhibit lA. 

The respective owners of, and other parties in- 
terested in, properties lying within the project site 
not acquired by the Chicago Land Clearance Com- 
mission will be required to covenant with the Com- 
mission, by means of a written agreement, to re- 
strict said respective properties to the particular 
uses set forth in the approved Redevelopment Plan. 

The Restrictive Agreement will provide that said 
covenants and agreements shall be covenants run- 
ning with the land and shall be in effect for the 
period of forty (40) years from the date of City 
Council approval of the first land disposition in the 
project area. These covenants and agreements shall 
be enforceable by the parties thereto, their respec- 
tive heirs, successors and assigns, or by any succes- 
sor in title to any of the parties thereto to the 
property or any part thereof described therein, 
against the parties thereto, their respective heirs, 
successors and assigns of the property described 
therein or any part thereof or any interest therein, 
and any party in possession or occupancy of the 
said property or any part thereof. 

The redevelopers, their successors or assigns, 
will be required by contract to observe all provi- 
sions of the redevelopment plan, including land use 
controls for a period of forty (40) years from the 
date of City Council approval of the first land 
disposition in the project area. Also, they will be 
required to submit a redevelopment progress sched- 
ule satisfactory to the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission. It is anticipated that redevelopers 
will not be permitted to defer the start of con- 
struction for a longer period than required for the 
preparation of architectural plans and the clear- 
ance of such plans with the Chicago Land Clear- 
ance Commission to determine whether they con- 
form to the redevelopment plan. Generally, this 
work should be completed within six to nine 
months. 

After any portion of land is disposed of, the 
Land Use Plan, Exhibit 1, may be modified only 
upon the written consent of the then property 
owners directly affected by the proposed modifica- 
tion. The contract with the redevelopers will in- 
clude prohibitions against land speculation. 

1. Opportunities for Private Enterprise 

All of the land in Projects Hyde Park A and B, 
except that to be devoted to public playground use, 
will be sold for development by private enterprise. 
The public park-playground areas will be purchased 
and developed by the appropriate city agencies. 

J. Official Action Needed on Local Codes, Zoning 
and Rights-of-Way Adjustment 

All local codes are to be complied within the 
development. Existing and proposed zoning are 
shown on the Zoning map, Exhibit 2. 



6354 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1957 



Action by the City Council will be required for 
the vacation by the City of portions of certain 
streets and the dedication to the City of certain 
streets, as shown on Exhibit 3, the Rights-of-Way 
Adjustment map. The City Council action required 
in connection with the zoning and street vacation 
and dedication is to be taken shortly before the 
physical changes are made.

opment plan approved March 28, 1957 ; 

Whereas, the Commission has prepared a rede-

Whereas, the City Council has reviewed the fore- 
going documents, and it is the sense of the City 
Council that said documents constitute a redevelop- 



ment plan within the meaning of the Blighted 
Areas Redevelopment Act of 1947; the said rede- 
velopment plan is in accord with modern principles 
of urban planning and with the recommendations 
of the Chicago Plan Commission for the redevelop- 
ment of the general area of which Slum and Blight- 
ed Area Redevelopment Project Hyde Park B is a 
part, and that the City Council desires to evidence 
its approval of said revised redevelopment plan;

cordance with said redevelopment plan; approval 
and acceptance of a subdivision or resubdivision 
plat or plats and acceptance of dedication of cer-

vide federal financial assistance to local public

slum clearance and urban redevelopment projects 
by private enterprise; 

Whereas, the Commission proposes to apply for 
financial assistance under such Act and to enter 
into a contract with the Housing and Home Finance 
Administrator making available federal financial 
assistance for the Project; 

Whereas, it is provided in such Act that con- 
tracts for financial aid thereunder shall require 
that the redevelopment plan for the respective proj- 
est area be approved by the governing body of the 
locality in which the Project is situated and that 
such approval include findings by the governing 
body that (1) the financial aid to be provided in 
the contract is necessary to enable the land within 
the project area to be redeveloped in accordance 
with the redevelopment plan; (2) the redevelop- 
ment plan for the redevelopment areas in the lo- 
cality will afford maximum opportunity consistent 
with the sound needs of the locality as a whole, for 
the redevelopment of such areas by private enter- 
prise; and (3) the redevelopment plan conforms 
to a general plan for the development of the local- 
ity as a whole; 

Whereas^ the Commission has distributed and 
allocated all of its City and State grant funds 
among additional development and redevelopment 
projects, the result of which is to make available 
for expenditure on Slum and Blighted Area Rede- 
velopment Project Hyde Park B only an amount of 
funds equal to one-third of the estimated net proj- 
ect cost, as evidenced by its Resolution No. 49- 
CLCC-51 of December 14, 1949, supplemented by 
its Resolution No. 51-CLCC-44 dated August 8, 
1951;

B. Eligibility of the Project for Federal Aid and 
Approval of Project Designation by the Chi- 
cago City Council and Illinois State Housing 
Board 

The Housing and Home Finance Agency of the 
Federal Government, acting under the terms of the 
Federal Housing Act of 1949, as amended, has 
approved an application for a letter to proceed 
with the use of local funds in the preparation of 
project plans. 

On September 25, 1956, the Chicago Land Clear- 
ance Commission, by Resolution No. 56-CLCC-114 
designated the area as a slum and blighted area 
redevelopment project. The City Council ordinance 
and the Illinois State Housing Board resolution 
which approved designation by the Commission of 
Project Lake-California were adopted on January 
18, 1957 and March 15, 1957 respectively. 

C. Project Boundaries 

This project is bounded generally by the Chicago 
and North Western Railroad right-of-way on the 
north, Talman Avenue and the alley due west of 
that Avenue on the east, on the south by Lake 
Street, and on the west by California Avenue. The 
precise boundaries are shown on Exhibit 1. A legal 
description of the project is attached to this state- 
ment. 

D. Relation to Local Planning Objectives 

The Chicago Plan Commission proposals for land 
use in the west side adjacent to this project are 
stated in a booklet entitled "A Pljin for the Cen- 
tral Area of Chicago", dated 1952. Those land use 
proposals include industrial and commercial use of 
the entire section of land due east of the Lake- 
California project, and north of Lake Street. Staff 
studies of that Commission also include proposals 
for industrial and commercial use of the Lake- 
California project area. 

The land use plan for this project is in con- 
formity with the general plan of Chicago as de- 
tailed in the various studies of the Chicago Plan 
Commission, and its successor, the Department of 
City Planning. The traffic proposals are also in con- 
formity with the recommendations of the City 
Traffic Engineer. 

E. Land Use Plan 

The 23.5 acres of gross area, include 5.1 acres 
for streets and alley and a net area of 18.4 acres 
to be used for light industrial and commercial pur- 
poses. The complete breakdown of land uses is 
shown in the following tabulation: 
Land Use Acres Per Cent 

Gross Area 23.5 100.0 

Streets and alleys 5.1 21.7 

Net Area 18.4 78.3 

Net Area 18.4 100.0 

Existing light industrial and 
commercial which may be

Light industrial and com- 
mercial 17.3 94.0 



Following are the address, land use, and struc- 
ture type of six (6) non-residential parcels which

F. Controls on Redevelopers 

Major controls on use of land are shown on the 
Land Use Plan, Exhibit 1. 

The respective owners of, and other parties in- 
terested in, properties lying within the project site 
not acquired by the Chicago Land Clearance Com- 
mission will be required to covenant with the Com- 
mission, by means of a written agreement, to re- 
strict said respective properties to the particular 
uses set forth in the approved Redevelopment Plan. 
The Restrictive Agreement will provide that said 
covenants and agreements shall be covenants run- 
ning with the land and shall be in effect for the 
period of forty (40) years from the date of City 
Council approval of the first land disposition in the 
project area. These covenants and agreements shall 
be enforceable by the parties thereto, their respec- 
tive heirs, successors and assigns, or by ajiy suc- 
cessor in title to any of the parties thereto to the 
property or any part thereof described therein, 
against the parties thereto, their respective heirs, 
successors and assigns of the property described 
therein or any part thereof or any interest therein, 
and any party in possession or occupancy of the 
said . property or any part thereof. 

The redevelopers, their successors or assigns, 
will be required by contract to observe all provi- 
sions of the redevelopment plan, including land 
use controls for a period of forty (40) years from 
the date of City Council approval of the first land 
disposition in the project area. Also, they will be 
required to submit a redevelopment progress sched- 
ule satisfactory to the Chicago Land Clearance

Commission. It is anticipated that redevelopers 
will not be permitted to defer the start of con- 
struction for a longer period than required for the 
preparation of architectural plans and the clear- 
ance of such plans with the Chicago Land Clear- 
ance Commission to determine whether they con- 
form to the redevelopment plan. Generally, this 
work should be completed within six to nine 
months. 

After any portion of land is disposed of, the Land 
Use Plan, Exhibit 1, may be modified only upon 
the written consent of the then property owner, 
directly affected by the proposed modification. The 
contract with the redevelopers will include prohibi- 
tions against land speculation. 

G. Circulation and Public Tra)isportation 

Lake Street with an existing right-of-way width 
of 80 feet will be widened on center to 100 feet to 
serve as a major street for through traffic. Local 
access wherever possible, will be prohibited from 
adjacent parcels to be developed in the project. 

The street pattern proposed includes a new local 
street to provide additional local access as noted 
in Exhibit 2, Rights-of-Way Adjustment. All 
parcels to be developed will have access from 
streets designed for local traffic. 

The closing of a portion of Washtenaw Avenue 
as showm on Exhibit 2, Rights-of-Way Adjustment 
map, is contingent upon provision of satisfactory 
alternative access for the uses adjacent to the proj- 
ect area. 

This project is well served by public transporta- 
tion facilities. The Chicago Transit Authority op- 
erates both elevated and surface lines along Lake 
Street, from which transportation to north and 
south points is readily available by transfer at 
major intersections. Immediate north and south 
transfer is provided by a Chicago Transit Author- 
ity surface line at California. 

H. Opportunities for Private Enterprise 

All of the land in the project area with the excep- 
tion of streets, will be redeveloped by private enter- 
prise. 

I. Official Action Needed on Local Codes, Zoning, 
and Rights-of-Way Adjustment 

All local codes will be complied with in the de- 
velopment. The project area is now zoned to allow 
development for light industrial and commercial 
uses. No change is proposed in the zoning. 

Action by the City Council will be required in 
connection with the vacation of portions of certain 
streets and the acceptance by the City of certain 
streets to be dedicated as shown on Exhibit 2, 
Rights-of-Way Adjustment map. Such City Council 
action is to be taken shortly before the physical 
changes are made.

6382 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1957 



The respective owners of, and other parties in- 
terested in, properties lying within the project site 
not acquired by the Chicago Land Clearance Com- 
mission will be required to covenant with the Com- 
mission, by means of a written agreement, to re- 
strict said respective properties to the particular 
uses set forth in the approved Redevelopment Plan. 
The Restrictive Agreement will provide that said 
covenants and agreements shall be covenants run- 
ning with the land and shall be in effect for the 
period of forty (40) years from the date of City 
Council approval of the first land disposition in the 
project area. These covenants and agreements shall 
be enforceable by the parties thereto, their respec- 
tive heirs, successors and assigns, or by any suc- 
cessor in title to any of the parties thereto to the 
property or any part thereof described therein, 
against the parties thereto, their respective heirs, 
successors and assigns of the property described 
therein or any part thereof or any interest therein, 
and any party in possession or occupancy of the 
said property or any part thereof. 

The redevelopers, their successors or assigns, 
will be required by contract to observe all provi- 
sions of the redevelopment plan, including land use 
controls for a period of forty (40) years from the 
date of City Council approval of the first land dis- 
position in the project area. Also, they will be re- 
quired to submit a redevelopment progress sched- 
ule satisfactory to the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission. It is anticipated that redevelopers will 
not be permitted to defer the start of construction 
for a longer period than required for the prepara- 
tion of architectural plans and the clearance of 
such plans with the Chicago Land Clearance Com- 
mission to determine whether thej^ conform to the 
redevelopment plan. Generally, this work should 
be completed within six to nine months. 

G. Circulation and Public Transportation 

Lake Street and Western Avenue serve as major 
streets for through traffic. Within the project they 
are to be widened on center to a right-of-way of 
100 feet. Local access to those major streets will 
be prohibited from adjacent parcels to be developed 
in the project. In some cases where existing uses 
which may remain prevent access from a parcel to 
be developed to a local street, this restriction may 
have to be modified. 

An additional local street is provided so that the 
maximum amount of land will have direct access 
to local streets. Portions of certain existing streets 
are to be vacated to reduce the number of street in- 
tersections and consequent interference with the 
capacity of through streets, as well as to allow 
greater area for large plant sites. Certain portions 
of Maplewood and Campbell Avenues are to be va- 
cated provided alternative access can be obtained 
for establishments outside of this project. 

This project area is readily accessible from all 
parts of the city via the existing major streets 
system. It will be even more accessible when the 
Congress Street Expressway, which is located 
three-quarters of a mile south of the project, and 
other segments of the expressway system are com- 
pleted. 

This project is well served by public transporta- 
tion facilities. The Chicago Transit Authority op- 
erates both elevated and surface lines along Lake 
Street, from which transportation to north and 
south points is readily accessible by transfer at 
major intersections. Immediate north and south 
transfer is provided by a Chicago Transit Author- 
ity surface line on Western Avenue. 



H. Opportunities for Private Enterprise 

All of the land in the project area with the ex- 
ception of streets will be redeveloped by private en- 
terprise. 

I. Official Action Needed on Local Codes, Zoning, 
and Right s-of -Way Adjustment 

All local codes will be complied with in the de- 
velopment. Existing zoning is now satisfactory to 
allow development for commercial and light indus- 
trial uses so that no zoning revisions need to be 
made. 

Action by the City Council will be required in 
connection with the vacation of portions of certain 
streets and the acceptance by the City of certain 
streets to be dedicated as shown on Exhibit 2, 
Rights-of-Way Adjustment map. Such City Coun- 
cil action is to be taken shortly before the physical 
changes are made.

Review Division), which was Placed on File: 

"Re: Times Film Corp. vs. City of Chicago et al.. 
Supreme Court of the United States — No. 372. 

"Gentlemen — On November 12, 1957, the Su- 
preme Court of the United States granted certiorari 
in the above cause and summarily disposed of the 
matter by entering the following order: 

'Per Curiam: The petition for writ of certio- 
rari is granted and the judgment of the United 
States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit 
is reversed. Alberts v. California, 354 U.S. 476. 

Mr. Justice Burton and Mr. Justice Clark are 
of the opinion that the petition for certiorari 
should not have been granted.' 

"This was a declaratory Judgment proceeding 
wherein the court was asked to declare the Chicago 
Motion Picture Censorship Ordinance unconstitu- 
tional as being violative of constitutional guaran- 
tees against infringements of freedom of speech 
and of the press. It was also contended that, if the 
ordinance was deemed constitutional, nevertheless 
it was unconstitutionally applied in that proper 
standards for evaluating the merits of motion pic- 
tures were not set up in the ordinance nor followed 
in judging the motion picture in question. It was 
further contended that the motion picture was, as 
an issue of fact, not obscene or offensive and that 
its exhibition to the general public should be al- 
lowed. 

"The District Court and the United States Court 
of Appeals held that the ordinance was constitu- 
tional, that it was constitutionally applied, and that 
the motion picture concerned was obscene. Plaintiff 
is a New York corporation which sought a permit 
to exhibit a French movie entitled: "The Game of 
Love." The Commissioner of Police rejected the 
application and denied a permit on the grounds 
that the film was obscene. On appeal to the Mayor, 
the Commissioner's findings and ruling were af- 
firmed. Suit was thereupon instituted to compel 
the issuance of a permit. 

"Due to the absence of an opinion by the United 
States Supreme Court, we can only interpret the 
underlying reasons for the Court's order. We be- 
lieve that the United States Supreme Court, in 
effect, sustained the validity of our censorship or- 
dinance and held that it was constitutionally ap- 
plied to the film in issue. However, we believe that 
the Court was of the opinion that the motion pic- 
ture was not, as an issue of fact, obscene or offen- 
sive to morals. Accordingly, the film "The Game of 
Love" may now be exhibited in the City of Chicago. 

"In our opinion movies should still be censored 
and rejected if obscene or unacceptable for other 
reasons spelled out in the ordinance. The plaintiff 
recognized the validity of our ordinance by imme- 
diately applying for a permit after the ruling of 
the Supreme Court of the United States."

The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the 
City Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadway (s) of the several street (s) here- 
tofore specified betw^een the points herein described, 
also the roadway (s) of the intersecting alley (s) 
extended from the curb line to the street line on 
each side of said specified street (s) between the 



points herein described, shall be so graded by cutting 
or filling and compacted by rolling with a roller of 
ten (10) tons weight that after the grading of the 
roadbed(s) is completed and the pavement herein 
described placed thereon, the surface of the finished 
pavement at the center of the roadway of each of 
said specified street (s) shall be at the elevation of 
the top of the curbing herein described; and the 
surface of the said finished pavement at the sum- 
mits in the gutters between catchbasins and adjoin- 
ing the roadway face of the curbing shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of said curbing, and at the 
catchbasin inlets in the gutters adjoining the road- 
way face of the curbing shall be nine (9) inches 
below the top of said curbing. The slope of the 
gutters adjoining the roadway face of said curbing 
shall be uniform from the summits to the catch- 
basin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arch of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and the 
elevation of the center of said finished roadway at 
every part of the roadway of said specified 
street (s) between the points herein described. 

In all intersecting alley (s) herein specified at 
the street line(s) of said specified street (s) the 
surface of the finished pavement adjoining the 
curbing shall be even with the top of the curbing, 
and the surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway (s) of said alley (s) shall 
be three (3) inches below the top of the curbing: 
and a transverse section of the surface of the fin- 
ished pavement at the street line(s) of said spe- 
cified street (s) shall be an arc of a circle passing 
through the surface of the pavement adjoining 
said curbing and the surface of the pavement at 
the center of said finished roadway (s). The sur- 
face of the said pavement thence shall slope grad- 
ually to meet the surface of the finished pavement 
at the curb lines of said specified street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the road bed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of 
four (4) inches internal diameter and held on a 
ring of two ( 2 ) inches internal diameter. The stone 
as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall 
be evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets 
filled with the small size stone. This layer shall be 
thoroughly rolled with a self-propelled three-wheel 
roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons,. The 
rolling shall begin at the edges of the pavement 
and roller shall move parallel with the center line 
of the roadway. The roller shall progress gradually 
toward the center of the roadway, uniformly lap- 
ping each preceding track, covering the entire sur- 
face with the rear wheels and continuing until the 
stone does not creep or move ahead of the roller. 
After the crushed limestone has been thoroughly 
rolled and keyed, limestone screenings shall be 
applied gradually over the surface and the rolling 
continued until sufficient screenings have been ap- 
plied to completely fill the interstices. 

The screenings shall be swept in with hand 
brooms to properly fill the voids. The spreading 
and rolling shall continue until no more screenings, 
will go in dry. No excess of screenings shall be 
used before applying water. Immediately after the 



6412 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 26, 1957 



voids have been filled with screenings, the macadam 
shall be sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler 
being followed by a roller. More screenings shall 
be added if necessary. The sprinkling, sweeping 
and rolling shall continue until a grout shall be 
formed of the screenings and water that will fill 
all voids, and form a wave of grout before the 
wheels of the roller. The quantity of screenings 
and water necessary to fill the voids shall be de- 
termined by the engineer and shall be sufficient to 
produce a rough, granular surface. The rollings, at 
all times, shall begin at the sides, and then progress 
toward the center, thoroughly covering the entire 
surface with the rear wheels. When compacted, 
this layer shall measure not less than five (5) 
inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished water-bound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a 
depth providing a total base course thickness of 
three (3) inches after final compaction. After 
shaping to grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton 
roller three quarter (%) inch stone chips shall 
be broadcast and broomed into the surface voids 
at the rate of fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. 
Liquid asphalt at a temperature of 140° F. shall be 
uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at a 
rate of one and one-half (1^/2) gallons per square 
yard. Stone chips shall again be broadcast and 
broomed uniformly over the surface at the rate of 
fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt 
shall be uniformly applied by a pressure distrib- 
utor at the rate of one-half ( 1/2 ) gallon per square 
yard. Stone chips shall be broadcast again at the 
rate of ten (10) pounds per square yard. The 
surface shall then be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt 
shall conform to the State Specifications for Emul- 
sified Asphalt R.S.I, and R.S.2. Page 640 State of 
Illinois Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge 
Construction adopted January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches 
in thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete 
mixture conforming to the standard requirements 
of the Illinois State Division of Highways for 
Type I-II Asphaltic Concrete adopted January 2, 
1952, as follows: the asphaltic mix shall consist 
of a mineral aggregate bonded with an asphaltic 
cement. The mineral aggregate shall consist of 
the best quality of crushed gravel or crushed stone 
in sizes graduated in accordance with the following 
table, viz. : 

Asphaltic Concrete Surface Courses, Fine 
Detise-Graded Aggregate Type 

Passing ^2 inch sieve 95-100%

(Table 45.11 p. 247 State Specifications) 

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Division 
of Highways for Grade P.A.6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash point 



(Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. It shall 
have penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eighty-five (85), 
and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths (99.5) per 
cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in carbon 
disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and Is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325)' 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving as- 
phalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquet Dow form of said paving as- 
phalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit 
in an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous 
mixture in which all particles of aggregate are 
coated uniformly. The heated mixture shall be 
delivered to the pavement in trucks with approved 
clean tight dump bodies. The temperature when 
delivered at the street shall be between two hun- 
dred fifty (250) and three hundred fifty (350) 
degrees fahrenheit. Upon arrival the asphaltic 
mixture shall be spread upon the prepared base at 
a uniform depth and consistency so that the thick- 
ness when compacted as herein described will be 
two ( 2 ) inches. Immediately after the asphalt sur- 
face course shall be spread it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three (3) wheel 
roller or a tandem roller. The asphalt paving mix 
shall be dumped first upon approved steel dump 
pans outside of the area on which it is to be spread. 
Immediately thereafter it shall be distributed into 
place with shovels and spread with rakes in layers 
of uniform density and correct depth, unless a 
spreading machine is used. If a spreading machine 
is used it shall be of a type approved by the Board 
of Local Improvements. Immediately after the sur- 
face course mixture is placed it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three-wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. One (1) or more three-wheel 
rollers and one (1) or more tandem rollers will 
be required. The actual number of such rollers 
to be used shall be determined by the Engineer in 
accordance with the progress of the work. If the 
production of the asphalt plant delivered to the 
pavement exceeds seventy-five (75) tons per hour 
additional rollers shall be furnished as directed 
by said Engineer. After final rolling the asphalt 
surface course shall at all points have a density of 
not less than ninety-five (95) per cent of the 
maximum possible density of a voidless pavement 
composed of the same materials in like proportions. 

Concrete crosswalks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete crosswalks shall be built ac- 
cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and gut- 
ters). 

All existing catchbasins which are to be aban- 
doned are located at the intersections of streets. 
Where existing catchbasins are to be abandoned

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor (on behalf of

submitted the following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, the Society of Jesus, familiarly known 
as the Jesuit Order, has played a most important 
role in the growth and development of the City of 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, the Jesuit Order has for one hundred 
years faithfully served the religious needs of the 
Chicago Catholic Community; and 

Whereas, this city has achieved a measure of 
greatness through the continued service and in- 
fluence of the Society of Jesus; and 

WHEREAS;, the work of the Jesuits from their 
beginning at Holy Family Church in 1857 was 
expanded to meet the religious, educational and 
sociological necessities of the growing community 
through succeeding years ; and 

Whereas, the Jesuit Order in Chicago adminis- 
ters one of the nation's outstanding Catholic uni- 
versities and two leading secondary schools; and 

Whereas, the Jesuits have for the past one hun- 
dred years contributed to the education and cul- 
tural development of many of Chicago's civic and 
professional leaders of all faiths; and 

Whereas, this year of 1957 marks the centenary 
of the first permanent Jesuit installation in the 
city; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the Mayor and the City 
Council of the City of Chicago on behalf of the 
citizens of our City do hereby extend to the entire 
membership of the Jesuit Order heartiest felicita- 
tions and warmest congratulations upon the 100th 
Anniversary of its founding in the City of Chicago 
and their deepest appreciation for their contribu- 
tions during that period of time to the educational 
and cultural advancement and development of the 
community; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That this Resolution be 
spread upon the record of the proceedings of the

Tribute Paid to Late Max Arthur. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, we have learned with deep regret of 
the passing of Max Arthur, famed news photog- 
rapher who was employed by the Chicago Tribune 
for the past twenty-one years; and 

Whereas, his great ability as a cameraman, his 
unerring instinct for news values, and his gentle, 
friendly manner endeared him to an unusually wide 
acquaintanceship in the City Hall and in the County 
Building, which constituted his "beat" for the past 
several years; and 

Whereas, he won great distinction for his photo- 
graphic coverage of foreign affairs, on assignment 
by his paper, subsequent to World War II ; and 

Whereas, he served in the American merchant 
marine as a ship captain during World War II and 
was bereft of his mother and father through the 
tragedy of the war; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, that we, the 
members of the Chicago City Council, in meeting 
assembled this fifth day of December, do hereby 
express our sorrow upon the death of Max Arthur 
and extend to his friends and associates our sincere 
condolences.

resolution was adopted, unanimously, by a rising vote.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 5, 1957 



COMMITTEE ON LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 



Placed on File — Annual Report of Committee on 
Local Transportation. 

The Committee on Local Transportation submitted 
the following report, which was Placed on File: 

City Council 

Committee on Local Transportation 

City of Chicago 

October 15, 1957. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, 
and Members of City Council, 
City of Chicago, 
Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — The Committee on Local Trans- 
portation respectfully submits, herewith, its Annual 
Report on activities in the field of mass transporta- 
tion for the year 1956. 

During 1956 the Committee and its Engineering 
Staif were primarily concerned with : ( 1 ) adequacy 
of available transit service; (2) factors affecting 
adequacy of transit service; and (3) demand for 
transit service. 

Inasmuch as the bulk of transit service within 
our Chicago boundaries is provided by the Chicago 
Transit Authority, the Committee and its Staff 
made inquiries and analyses of the adequacy, cost 
and operating factors affecting C.T.A. services, such 
as expense items, schedules, street traffic conges- 
tion, safety, modernization of equipment and the 
financial structure (as set forth in the accompany- 
ing report) to determine whether the public is 
getting the best and most modern service for the 
rate of fare charged. 

Being always conscious of the effect traffic con- 
gestion may have on mass transit vehicles, this 
Committee with the aid of its Engineering Staff 
has effectively assisted other city agencies in bring- 
ing about expansion of the one-way street program 
and has conducted surveys to determine the practic- 
ability of traffic lanes in the Loop for the exclusive 
use of mass transit vehicles. 

Over the years, the Engineering Staff of this 
Committee in connection with its activities has ac- 
cumulated experience and awareness of the com- 
plexities of mass transportation and its many 
problems as they relate to Chicago and the Metro- 
politan area as a whole. It is on this premise that 
we offer the following observations : 

The City of Chicago has made great strides with 
the cooperation of Federal, State and County 
agencies in initiating and providing facilities for 



mass transit operation in the median strip of sev- 
eral of our expressways. This can and no doubt will 
be further developed and expanded by providing 
parking and off-street bus terminal facilities in the 
outlying areas near high-speed Rapid Transit Lines. 
The high passenger carrying capacities will pro- 
vide fast, frequent, traffic-free, safe and efficient 
service. This type of service will attract more 
transit riders than could possibly be accomodated 
in private autos on many additional lanes of ex- 
pressways and will tend to reduce traffic conges- 
tion and competition for street space in our Central 
Business Area. 

The efficient utilization of Rapid Transit Lines' 
terminal facilities by the suburban feeder buses 
and established railroad rights-of-way which fan 
out in every direction from our Central Business 
Area, tapping a tremendous area of suburban 
riders, is essential to further orderly development 
and reduction in congestion of our streets. 

Therefore, we observe with great interest that 
responsible agencies have become interested in the 
creation of an overall planning group with author- 
ity to explore thoroughly the potentials for better 
transportation into Chicago, and give the Metropol- 
itan Area the benefit of a master coordinated and 
integrated plan that is so sorely needed. 

The foregoing was recommended by this Commit- 
tee in our last annual report, and the fruition of 
this idea into a legislative planning group which, 
with the cooperation of all interested parties, could 
very well be the stimulating impetus required to 
bring about a solution of this vexing problem. 

I sincerely appreciate the enthusiastic coopera- 
tion given to our Committee and its Engineering 
Staff by Messrs. Wm. H, Sexton, Joseph F. Gross- 
man and James A. Condon, of the Corporation 
Counsel's office, Virgil E. Gunlock, Chairman, 
members of the Chicago Transit Board, and their 
Staff, George L. DeMent, Commissioner of Public 
Works, Lloyd M. Johnson, Commissioner of Streets 
and Sanitation, Leslie J. Sorenson, City Traffic 
Engineer and Wm. P. Flynn, Public Vehicle License 
Commissioner and other various City Departments 
and Civic Organizations interested in Chicago 
Transportation. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my thanks to 
the members of the Engineering Staff of this Com- 
mittee for their faithful and diligent efforts in 
behalf of the Committee and the Riding Public. 
Respectfully submitted 

(Signed) Paul M. Sheridan, 
Chairman^ Committee on Local Transportation.
